Often we have team members who are studying for a qualification in their chosen career field, we have team members who are ‘just passing through whilst travelling’ and others who are working in hospitality until they decide what they want to do as their ‘real job’. Hospitality is a sector that has such a varied skill set, and we are always keen to help develop our team and their skill set to allow them to have the best opportunities at whatever they decide to do long term! We have been lucky enough to have some of those team members who were just passing through, studying, or figuring out what they wanted to do, stay with us and they have been integral in helping us deliver a great service to our customers!
We also have team members who know hospitality is where they want to be, they have worked their way round the world, round the restaurant to gain experience, some have studied hospitality or management and see their careers in hospitality long term.
Whatever the reason they team have decided to work in hospitality we have a responsibility to support them in their continued learning and professional development, part of our commitment to our Team Charter is
  • Train, develop, upskill and support you with your own professional development through a variety of industry recognised channels

  • Challenge, encouraging you to be the best version of yourself at all times

We are lucky enough to work with lots of suppliers, training providers, hospitality specific charities and education facilities that offer courses, scholarships and onsite product development training sessions that the team can attend. HIT Scotland release scholarship programmes yearly that many of our team have been selected to attend. Most recently some of our team were selected to take part in the Tourism and Hospitality Talent Development programme which was created and adapted to suit online learning during Covid-19 restrictions. This was a huge achievement! We are very proud that with everything else going on they made a commitment to their own professional development and they both loved it!
Here is what they had to say….


“Its been an incredibly inspiring and uplifting experience. I had the opportunity to meet and engage with a bunch of amazing people from different organisations. We’ve learnt new set of skills and how to be resilient to help us deal with any challenges we face ahead.

I feel more motivated now and I cant wait to go back to work and share my experienced with my colleagues.

It  was well worth it”

Ali – Section Holder – The Scottish Cafe & Restaurant


“I really enjoyed those meetings with  fantastic people from different areas of the hospitality and tourism industry. It was great to know their  opinion and see the current situation in hospitality from different perspectives.  We went through a lot of changes   in the last one  year  but we should not look at them as something negative. Change is never bad as it helps us to improve our skills and attitudes.  I am really excited about the reopening. It will be a new challenge for everyone and I am sure I will be able to use the skills I learnt on the training.  I would like to thank you for this great opportunity at Hit Scotland and to thank Margaret for her effective sessions.
